The boot is rather narrow, so don't just buy this based on a size chart. I wear a US 11, maybe 10.5 if the shoe is large. For me the Trango needs to be Euro 45 to fit well, and if I were to add an aftermarket insole, it needs to be 45.5
Seams hold up for the life of the soles. I currently have two pair that have seen about 600 miles each (Muir Trail twice each and other trips) and the rubber still looks good enough for one or two more. I have no idea if you can re-sole these easily.
My son and daughter also hike in Trango S Evo GTX boots, and have the same experiences. Great modern boot for those who think trail runners are just asking for ankle injuries, or if you venture to places where some crampons may be a good idea.
Then, wore them on a true mountain climb. They worked well with crampons and traction on climb. They were warm, dry and fairly comfortable, although a bit narrow. On the descent, slightly different story. Constant rain caused them to get somewhat damp. This caused sliding inside the boot with wool socks. The sliding caused bumping into the toe bumper, which caused loss of both big toe toenails. I only say I blame the shoe somewhat because other than my boots, I was dry. And, I was dry while traversing the glacier. Since the climb, I have only worn them sparingly on winter walks. They do not perform well on solid (concrete surfaces) due to the hard sole and act more similarly to a hockey skate than a hiking shoe.
These boots are lightweight for mid ankle climbing boots, stiff enough for edging on small ledges and moderate technical climbs 5.7. Grip great on flat (smearing) Sturdy enough for kicking steps in packed snow, and have never had a problem with blisters, heel rise, wetness, odor. I have been using them with grivel g12 new-matic crampons and have zero issues, even run the trail in them once I get off a mountain. I bought a pair for my father to replace his R.D. Superguides, same joyfull experience.
I have used these boots on 5 or 6 climbing trips, 200-300 miles hiking, and 20+ summits with no worries, even lacing these up makes me giddy.
